XML Software from Boston-based Infoteria Chosen for Sydney Paralympics
We Media Chooses Software from Infoteria and Microsoft to Support Live
Updates on the Web
Don't Miss the Games:  October 18 to 29

Boston, MA and Tokyo, Japan October 24, 2000 Infoteria Corporation, the XML
software company, announced today that its software was chosen to support
webcasting of the Sydney 2000 Paralympic Games.  The games run from October
through October 29.  The We Media webcast is being supported by IBM, the
partner of the Sydney 2000 Paralympic Games.

We Media chose Infoteria's iMAKER software and XML to support its webcast
of the
Paralympics Games from Sydney.  We Media staff, technical and
non-technical, will
input event results using Microsoft's Excel spreadsheet from their laptops.
iMAKER will translate this Excel spreadsheet data into XML (eXtensible
Language), enabling the information to be used by the We Media's webcasting

"Infoteria is very jazzed about We Media's work at the Sydney Paralympics,
as well as
their selection of iMAKER," said Tim Browne, CEO and president of Infoteria
Corporation, Worldwide.  "Because of Microsoft Excel's ubiquity in the
and ease of use, We Media wanted to use it in its scoring system.  Our
iMAKER was a
natural for them.  It is the industry's only solution for moving Excel data
into XML.  The
combination allowed its entire staff, regardless of technical skill, to
input event results
from anywhere in the enormous Sydney venue. This not only is a great
example of an
elegant solution made possible by XML, but it's in support of an
outrageously cool event.
Infoteria has always been committed to diversity in the workplace, and we
applaud the
spirit of the Paralympic Games, which highlights the strength, excellence,
determination of these very special athletes."
